ADVERSITY CUP POINTS

For any Adversity Cup race that you finish, you will receive points as follows:
Winners Time in Total Minutes / Your Time in Total Minutes * distance factor + additional points (if applicable)

If you finish a 50 mile race 25th in 9:32:27, we’ll round to the nearest minute, so you’d have a 9:32 (572 Minutes). The winner finished in 7:10 (430 minutes). So, your score is: 430 minutes (winners time)/572 minutes (your time) * 10 (distance factor) = 7.52 points

Using the same example above, if you finished 5th in your gender (instead of 25th), we’ll add 4 points to your total for 11.52 Points

WINNER’S POINTS (awarded by gender)

1st = 20

2nd = 14

3rd = 10

4th = 6

5th = 4

DISTANCE FACTOR POINTS

Half Marathon = 2.62

14, 16, & 17 = 3.2

Marathon = 5.24

50k & 50k+ = 6.4

50mi & 50mi+ = 10

100km = 12.4

100mi = 20

Timed Events = Distance Factor for last milestone reached.
If you run 82 miles at 24 Hours of Palmer Lake, your last milestone reached was 100km
Your distance factor would be 12.4

VOLUNTEER POINTS

We never forget our invaluable volunteers. For every hour you work at any HPRS Race, 1 point will be added to your total.
